What makes us different is that we use cutting-edge research to counter the spread of digital hate and misinformation that has real, offline consequences. Our work is acclaimed by policymakers and civil society globally. We are setting the agenda for what is going wrong and how to fix digital spaces.

Our teams work collaboratively and creatively across a range of different topic areas, from the anti-vaxx movement to virtual reality.

  • Individual staff training budgets to improve their skills
  • Lots of opportunities for career development and learning

We want to hear from applicants from all backgrounds, and especially welcome applications from people of color, the LGBTQIA+ community, women, and people with disabilities. We’re committed to a belief that the more our work is created by people from a variety of backgrounds, and with a range of life experiences, the better it will be.

The Role

The Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) is an international, not-for-profit research and advocacy organisation that seeks to disrupt the architecture of online hate and misinformation.

We are agile, influential and have a global impact – with offices in London and Washington D.C. and connections globally. 

CCDH is a leading voice on online harms and advocating for online safety initiatives across the globe. We set the agenda for understanding what is wrong in digital spaces and how to fix them. 

We work across a range of different areas, from the anti-vaccination movement to climate change and artificial intelligence. Policymakers, regulators, and elected officials are a key audience for us as we advance solutions, and in the EU, ensure regulation is enforced.

We are keen to interview people who will add diversity of experience to our team.
